Congratulations to our volunteer drivers:   the Village has provided 900 rides since April 2015!
 

Welcome

Need a ride to go shopping or to the doctor?  Are chores that were once easy becoming challenging?  Would you like to help neighbors facing these challenges?
 

Welcome to the Village of Takoma Park, an all-volunteer grass roots, non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization of neighbors helping neighbors.

 

Research shows that the majority of  Americans prefer to stay in their homes and communities in spite of age or disability. The goal of the Village of Takoma Park is to provide intergenerational support to seniors and persons with disabilities who wish to live actively in the Takoma Park community.

 

Though independent of both the City of Takoma Park and Montgomery County, the Village helps to promote and facilitate access to information about County and City services, and collaborates with the City and County in their efforts to serve residents aged 55+ as well as disabled residents of all ages, connecting them with resources, services and programs.

 
Services (some free to all residents; some requiring membership) currently being either offered or promoted by the Village include transportation through the VillageRides program, friendly visits, monthly information sessions, and special support groups.
 
Many individual neighborhoods within Takoma Park have their own informal groups providing mutual support and community-building activities.  The Village of Takoma Park builds upon their successes and invites their residents to join the larger Village.

As we continue to recruit and train volunteers, we are building a corps of people who can provide services such as simple home maintenance, minor technical issues, errands, yard work, and other tasks that have become difficult or unsafe.  The Village will also organize and/or facilitate access to social and intellectual activities. 


 

Membership in the Village of Takoma Park is open to all residents of Takoma Park, MD,

for dues of $10 per year.
